"Draft last night. Guests are Jay baron is now officially a New York knick. You got your NHL draft later on tonight. We're Jack us and cap Okaka will be going one two sear, you hear all these comparisons with RJ Barrett James harden, the way that it gets to the basket is Jalen, rose the way that he plays. I me I have no idea. And I don't know why people do that, because it's just so silly to put the pressure on these, like they compared like four guys to Leonard last night, because Leonard was the NBA finals MVP. And why not just hype the hell out of everybody. So when I hear these comparisons with RJ Barrett, I don't think about anything. I just think about the time. This is one of those rare picks for the Knicks. I know a lot about him 'cause how much Duke did we watch last year? The college basketball season it with Frank Neale Akina over in France, with Chris tops porzingas over in Lithuania. We saw a little bit of Kevin Knox Kentucky, but it's not like he was the driving force of that teaming RJ Barrett wins, I was out was at Vigo carry the team and dukes on TV every day. So I don't need a comparison with RJ barrel. Frank, Neale Akina, and Christopher. Maybe I did because I never saw him play didn't know anything about them, but with RJ Barrett, I haven't opinion on them, and I really really like them and yes, he needs to work on his jump shot in. Yes. Needs to work on his free throw shooting. But this guy is going to score in a beast for the new. Well, he sounds like he'll, he'll be more than working on it, you know and the way his dad sounded yesterday. They sound like they're really focused. And so just to kind of give you a little comparison of, what a new team could give Kevin Durant, if the ops out of his car. Okay. So what a new team could give Kevin Durant. If. The ops out of his contract by June. Twenty ninth is a four year deal for a total of one hundred and sixty four million dollars. All right. So the nets or the next could do that, if they convince them in the hospital, he's probably out now but they could give me, maybe he's out in the Hamptons. I don't know. But they could convince him one hundred sixty four million dollars over four years. Now, the other scenario is that he could opt in yet. His thirty one point five million this year rehab under the warriors banner and the next year, they go right back down and probably a little bit more than one hundred sixty four million next year. Okay. Or one of two things could happen. He could opt out and the warriors could give him a max contract of five years to one hundred twenty one million dollars five to twenty one that's, that's this year. Wow. Now he can take thirty one point five million, and wait till next year. And then. Get the five year supermax contract of two hundred twenty one million dollars cannot trade. That would be, so he would get this year's money, and then the five year contract after that isn't that a risk of major risk for the warriors to do that. To give him that. And then assume that someone's going to give up assets and take on that contract. And then you might be stuck with it. Yourselves away. It's being played as the warriors feel so bad God. And what happened to him stopping like you needs to get his money. I mean got enough money yet. I mean, no, he's the one that bet on himself, he's the one that went out to, to Golden State, and he's the one that wanna go back out of that court and play he had. Yeah. In independent doctor in his manager and Kevin himself agreed that he was ready to play. Right. So the warriors shouldn't feel guilty about that. This is how it's being played by Windhorst. It's a discussion point and all that other stuff. But I think any team that accepts a contract of two hundred and twenty one million dollars other than the State Warriors eighty it's Jerry is here with an update. Good morning Jerry morning brought to you by the raycatena auto group experience the luxury of space, Alexis Rx three fifty ill with third row seating now. Available at Ray Cotin Alexis, you know by now Zion Williamson, one, of course, to the pelicans, the grizzlies taking John Morand the Knicks, and RJ Barrett, hawk straight up to four take the Andre hunter and the Cavaliers choosing. Darius garland, the nets trading their first round pick to the clippers for a first round pick next year. They did take seven foot center, Nick lex of Georgia. And in the second round the Knicks picking is e bras dick is forward out of Michigan, a freshman at Michigan to here's some of the sound after Steve mills. Why are j Barrett? Being the number three gave to we felt. The most upset is a basketball player. That's what they got hoping for more of the same from Barrett's become the young man is one everywhere. He's been since he was thirteen years old in here's some of the stuff you were talking about J with Barrett. Just excited to play for New York. I'm so overwhelmed homeboys and just honored very thankful that the Knicks took the chance of me that they believe in me, and I'm so happy to be naked. I can't wait to play mass square and perhaps the best couple of seconds is when they say, all right. No more questions for RJ. He's done with the press conference. He kind of looks to the side and the microphones catch. You'll nick. That's kind of cool. He's not ruin them now really wants to do not need to ruin him. That's all now in terms of the pelicans Zion Williamson, here's David Griffin, who is pretty clear. Let's relax with Zion for a moment. This is not somebody who's supposed to be the savior of this franchise. That's not what this is. This is a nineteen year old kid who's going to spend this year learning how to play winning NBA basketball. He double down. Go play Duke. He's supposed to be the savior. Here's a savior Duke, and I was going to be the savior, New Orleans. Well, here's should have been to save your here. But now we got our J. Sounds like so let's trans. I iron now 'cause he's not I'm not trashing off. Let's go. Let's just crushing. You're you get sued hope you'll lose one hundred million dollars. Now zion? Here's Griffin on his team. This is drew holidays team. And when we made the team the trade that we made. Or working to complete rather. With a certain player who used to be here withdrew. We were very cognizant of the fact that this is drew holidays team. She's a couple times their magic. Imaginings could you imagine Bill check coming out and saying, this is Tom Brady's team? I mean, could you imagine like you know Pat Shurmur commands this Manning's team the way that he was saying that, though, it's like not saying that Anthony Davis was the guy. That's bill. Belgium say, and, you know, this is Julian Edelman team is. That he would never say it. Like why even say that? Why go down that road? I think he's trying to calm down the expectations. There's not a lot of pressure on Zion. And he goes out there and loses his mind. That's why I mean everybody in the world is saying that this guy is once in a generation, he could do everything also included. So I think the general manager wants to say, hey, so the guy's gone everywhere. He's gone. He's one two and he's been the guy. So why should it be able to assume that pressure? That's, that's the privilege of going number one overall Adrian draft. can handle sure he can speaking of privilege, the privilege to play on the Yankees because all they do is win last night? Another win on their way to winning this division by double digits. Swim.
"jay baron" Discussed on High Noon
"I totally understand why it is that if you own this team, you would not want to get into the territory of the tax and being in the territory of the Tex-Mex improve your team that affects mid level, all of that stuff like that. So I kinda get it, what I would be curious about, though, is what exactly the market for Stephen Adams would be because contrary to what you might think Stephen Adams is twenty five years old. But I can only imagine the mileage. That's all Ned twenty-five. He makes twenty five million dollars a year. You're not gonna find a big man as good as him very easily out there, and he makes a difference for them. But I would not blame team for wanting to get out ahead of what might be his physical decline. Well, there's the physical decline of Stephen Adams, there's the decline of Russell Westbrook who is at age thirty older, and he's older than his three point percentage last year. That is an enormous problem as you've discussed over and over again this season. But to get back to the luxury tax idea. Let's keep something in mind, too. Clay Bennett historically hates paying the luxury tax. But last year, the GM Sam prestige basically asked for a big raise his allowance. He said, I need more what happened the thunder went to three hundred million dollars. The first team in NBA history to do so combining the cap and attacks and what did they get? They got another first round exit. So if you're clay Bennett that was the year when I gave you the leash now that Lisa's shortening all the way that, well, this is where the warriors, I think kind of flip the game because keeping that thing together as they did required a willingness to pay the taxes. Keep going requires a willingness pay tax goes into finance or the purpose of the tax because the whole idea was to make people act like clay Bennett. Did you look around the league guys realize, okay, I guess, certain level of thing we might have to pay the tax that is going to dial itself back we'll on. It's weird now because again what the jazz have in front of them to funder. Also have in front of them. They of the Western Conference where they're like two teams that I can see that are probably not in the playoffs. The grizzlies end the sons. But everybody else's kind of in this problem for the funder as Paul George just had a double shoulder surgery. Russell westbrook. Does not seem to be improving that team seems to have a ceiling. That's lowering as the floor is opening up for everybody else. This is going to become another Billy Donovan show improve year. Yeah. Coming up next, the Knicks say, no. Thank you, Chris Paul, like like for their team. Dame lillard. Anthony Davis Klay Thompson. Danna Terachi Netco. We'll McKay Gina who McCain Space, Jam stalks. Ooh, I'm into that. People are kind of, like throwing shade at it. But like the Muggsy Bogues and Shawn Bradley in the first one all these people, I think are bigger than them. I got news, well, bigger than Mosey bows, which trying to say, well, bigger figurative, he'll, he'll come up here rocky. Oh, jaw Baltimore number seven because the NBA draft is tonight at seven o'clock on ESPN seven eastern ideas, Pablo, what are you most excited to see you tonight? I'm excited to see trades whoa, JR. Said there will be an extraordinary number of trades, and as much as I appreciate our Jay baron, Zayn Williamson, our friend John Mirant. I kind of get them I've seen them before. I just want to know what the rest of the league is going to do in this season in which everything is seemingly possible. You don't know who any the other players in the draft are no. Okay. So what's the excitement about the trades? Oh, they're gonna shuffle around and get another guy that I've never heard of what? May include players that I have heard in the trades for those guys that I haven't, and that's where it could get interesting. Specifically a number. I have to say this man, the universe taken away, what I always found to be the most site and mos- Anderson part of the draft. And that was ugly suits and the ugly suits have been taken away by stylists. And blamed LeBron James above allows us, the first dude, I remember showing to the draft knew it was clear..

"There's a lot of guys with question marks. But if you're the Knicks would you rather have camera should eight and, and, and Brandon Clark ten or Jay baron? I think you'd probably rather have the former in the two guys who can who can be out of rookie scale contracts, and build around to championship level players. I think that's the right formula and the right mindset for the Knicks to be taking here as the draft approach. By the way, like we saw this the past two years. We saw Atlanta trade down from three to five last year trading Luca for trae young and maybe that will be a poor decision, but we saw it, and then we saw at the year before, with Voss trading down from one to three with Markelle Foltz for Tatum and the kings pick that they have this year at number fourteen. So we've seen this two years in a row now. And it would not surprise me if we see it again, the team above the Knicks at number two davonte also reported, they wanted to schedule a workout with RJ Barrett RJ's, working out with the Knicks on, I think, June tenth gooney reported in Memphis was not able to get one with RJR. He declined to work out with the grizzlies. I wonder oh, Memphis is this is this Memphis, trying to stir the pot trying to raise value of the second pick, perhaps to force the Knicks to trade up, one spot, or is this then doing their diligence, or is this, then having questions about actually taking jobs ramp because I like. The fit with RJ Barrett's Goto scoring ability next to Mike Conley, as an overall leaning towards pass first point guard. Oh, yeah. I mean, I think we're in agreement in there. I think RJ Barrett. His perfect fit amongst the top four teams would probably be the Memphis grizzlies, given his ability to kind of create his own shot. And the fact that the grizzlies have really been looking for a solid wing for the past, like eight years now. But I do think I do think they're, they're doing their due diligence, like, why wouldn't you? You have the second pick in the draft. Wait so bear. It is trying to avoid this like, he's not perhaps, a Gamonal Cavani did say that there's still time for them to schedule a workout. But he did decline. The initial invitation to work out for the grizzlies to me this, there's reminds me of so much of the time that Kristaps Porzingis and his then agent, Andy Miller, steered him towards the Knicks. This title, be different, the Knicks cap space, the Knicks have a real significant chance of signing Katie, and somebody else different. If better arms. Yes. But for RJ Barrett, you gotta be thinking about what happens if they trade, you, I think Memphis on papers a great fit for him. Right. And if theoretically the Knicks select RJ Barrett, and they do the Andrew Wiggins thing, where they trade him in thirty days after he's eligible to be traded. You don't have a choice where you go. You don't have a choice. And with our RJ Barrett, you have at least the potential of going to a situation with the grizzlies that this. Supporting cast with a potential co-starring Jaren Jackson who perfectly complements you a both ends of the floor. He Jaren Jackson is a player like we discussed last year's draft class sharks at him, I believe, second on his board, a Jackson, somebody who can play next to anybody. And he can Hance RJ Barrett's ability as offensive player, and he can cover for some of his occasional limitations on defense. And perhaps, I think with that with that mindset that they have with that roster, they might call a veteran RJ playing in a winning situation. Maybe activates some of that defensive potential, maybe activates some of his playmaking ability that we saw at Duke on occasion when he had actual floor spacing RJ. Barrett has representatives on thinking really hard about actually giving the grizzlies a workout because that would be a great fit for him. Absolutely, danny..

"He's eighty to eighty five like, good luck. Good luck. Chris Middleton trying to guard this through I wasn't body in before the year after watching him in in high school now body this guy is incredible not just because of his physical abilities either done. Yeah. His I q how hardy plays both like that's the thing. He plays like he's three star or two star recruit. He does not play like somebody who his head there s kissed for years and years and years now. Yeah. No. It's it's really really amazing. Okay. So they play Virginia Tech. Most people have buzz Williams on the next plane to take the job the second they lose. In the meantime, they've actually beaten to Greenwich Zainuddin play. But neither the Justin Robinson the point guard for Virginia Tech does dukes run come to an end tonight. No, I think they roll. I do I think they role in this one because you don't really have anybody blacks, your can protect the rim to some extent. But RJ Barrett is going to salivate at the fact that he doesn't have to look in the lane in CA 7-foot-5, dude waiting on him Zayn Williamson same thing. It was a -ffective sign, but not to the same level. He's not it wasn't able to don't like he could and attack. RJ Barrett was the one who was most affected by taco fall. And I think now again. Yeah. Just Robinson helps but Justin Robinson is not going to be in the lane waiting for Jay, baron, Zaim links and those guys are going to take it to them. They're going to score fifty five points between the two they're going to go to the line over and over and over, and I would be shocked if this is a single digit game, and the I'm gonna take the other side. I think Duke wins Virginia Tech keeps exceptionally close. Okay. What about Kentucky? PJ Washington was playing like the best player in the SEC won best players. America. And then, you know, first week in the NCA Termine he's in a cast. So doesn't play I two I two games. And then all of a sudden two days ago, he Instagram's out of live video of him walking. So now send there's a chance to play. Will we see PJ Washington tonight? And and we'll we see him Sunday. Maybe more importantly. Yeah. We don't know what we know is John Calipari said that he has been cleared by the doctors, and there's no risk of further damage to the sprain foot. I say how the hell can you put him out there three days after he gets out of a cast that he's been in for a week against athletic Houston team that is going to go right at him. Let's face it. If PJ Washington's out there, they're going to try try to explode him in every way possible, especially getting them up and down the court. And this is a kid who could be a lottery picked up. I just don't know how you put them out there. I know he wants to get out. There is a tough kid love him as a player love is a kid. But again, if you John cale Perry, and you've been all about your players for long long time. I think you protect your player of year. Yeah. I look I think it's different because he's a he's a future NBA NBA draft pick. But I do think that playing will only help us stock if he plays, but how healthy will be. I would guess if it was me and he could play. I couple minutes tonight. So that he does. So that we see how it reacts with the day off you see if you can play Sunday because Sunday potentially North Carolina that's game of the tournament game of the tournament today. In terms of the overall town both coaches chamber programs. You got he's got have played in a basketball game before that game in order in order to be right? I want to ask you also, Jeff, you you cover the NBA, you know, the Celtics. Well, is it kyri? Is it the players, and the coaches these not really being all the players that vibe with the coaches is it Gordon Hayward and then playing him too, many minutes and that being awkward for the rotation. Why aren't the Celtics better and more cohesive or the best term is more connected. This point in the season. Well, number one..

"Here on the fan. We. Man, Brazil from the New York Post a live in studio. Getting ready for what this bracket is gonna look like Zach Duke, the number one overall one seed Virginia, I think a walk. You don't think is a lock to get a one c I do. I think everywhere you look you see one win over Duke is going to hold a lot of weight. So you think there's a legitimate chance. We could see on the two on comes on that. I mean, I think when it's all said and done they'll probably will you want. I don't think they deserve four think about this. Therefore quad one wins. Therefore, it's not just that they're Ford three. They basically a five hundred record against good teams and go look go look at what some of these other teams Michigan state. They look at what Carolina did they haven't played. They haven't played a good team since December. I I don't think it's fair. I think they should be a two seat. You're gonna have Gonzaga on the two on Tennessee. You take. Applying for one seat Sunday against Auburn. You think if they win Sunday against the Auburn war eagle they on that one line. Yeah. And if if I was doing it, I have Tennessee is a one and take the three ACC teams. Okay. All right. Let's get to how many teams win a national championship this year. I would put Duke on Alice. Dan me the favorites. I would put on that list. I put Carolina on that list. I put Virginia on that list. I would put Kentucky on that list. And that's probably what I'm stopping. I do not think Tennessee's winning a title. I do not think Michigan or Michigan state. They is winning a title. I'll put it at five over on the five teams this year who can win a national championship include Michigan state. There are you? Are you think Michigan centers enough talent this year to win the title? Yeah. Do especially down awards back a Winstons terrific. You know, they're they're not quite as talented. We're last, but they're clearly a much better team is always been known to work magic in March. I yeah, I think they can win at all. Okay, virginia. They're team. I've been very critical of I know you've been critical of Tony Benn in the past. But we have knowledge in the regular season the guy dominates he dominates. The there are a one or two or three seed it seems like year after year after year Zach is this finally going to be the year where Tony Bennett goes on a deep tournament run in these planning in the final four. I think they're getting through the first weekend. We got to see what the. Doc right at the sixteenth see last year. I would sure hope that Virginia's gonna make it out of that first week, and they're not taking bows, by the way, if they get through a sixteen and they beat eight or not it's like what they do. That's what he's supposed to do. Once. I was this point you you've lost. Vermont's it out of love to see the rematch that could have been ugly, and I would have hammered Virginia. And again, I'm gonna probably be all over Virginia. No matter who they play in that first game because you'd have to think they're going to take it out on that sixteen seat. Right. You'd have to. Yeah. I mean, but they're also they're going to face so much pressure in this not not. I mean, not just the first game. But throughout it got to get to a final four. I mean, they're gonna lose hunter. You know, the probably get Drome in Jerome will probably come back. But he could go pro. I mean, they're going to lose some pieces off this team. They would probably won't be quite as good next year. At some point as a one you got to get to a final four is this the best team Bennett has had it Virginia. I think he's had some pretty good some good teams. I mean, I feel like we always say this every year with them. You know is this the best team? He's had it and they choke in March. We'll find out if it's the best here. Okay. Duke getting back makes a world of difference. Duke is going to be a prohibitive favorite in this tournament. They should be they have this generational talent. And Zion Davol j Barrett who played terribly against North Carolina. But he's an offensive machine. He's going to be a top three pick and a draft. You have cameras you have Jones Zac if I gave you Duke against the field. And I'm getting Duke, basically, one fifty two hundred who would you take right now Duke of the field. I think I would take to if you're gonna tell me they're healthy, I picking against violence and you see him on Friday night against Carolina get ready for the gardens. So I also I sure hope so, and we I guess can put to bed the idea that RJ Barrett. Could dare I say a quick silence. And what the first pick in the draft after watching them on Friday night. You tell me you'd rather have all Jay baron on your team. I mean what games? Do you watch that kind of goes back to to the funny thing? People think with this new rule with the G league guys who do that? If Zaire Williamson didn't have Duke. He would not be the first pick in the draft. You're right about that. You know, he's he's really benefited from national TV from the Duke brand. Look is her is tremendous player. You might be a transcended player. He might be an amazing MBA player, but becomes this year? We didn't really know what to expect them. We thought he was probably a top five pick. But nobody knew he is this exposure he's guide. As done wonders for him. Another thing all the people who said he should shut it down. Barrington tech. Did did you did did everyone? See this kid after they won today. I mean the smiling face. He's obviously loves college. Obviously loves what he's what he's doing right now. And all the I didn't hear any of these people after what he did these last three days now nowhere to be found. I didn't see on Twitter over the weekend. You know should be sitting at home right now. Eat McDonald's getting ready for the NBA draft. You didn't see anything else tweets? He seems to be having fun. And as he should be because guess what he has a chance now to be an icon to be a legend that is remembered forever on that campus and to medium mazing thing about Zion Zack. You know, how do can be this polarizing program where their stores in the past have been Sohaib over the years. Whether it's shade daddy. Whether it's JJ Radic grace and Allen. I mean, there are so many guys over the years where you would look at them and it was like Mickey sixty stomach Zion. I think even if you're the biggest do cater on the planet. You gotta watch that kid play you it, the charisma the swagger way goes about it. I mean, he's very likable. That's all there is to He he's got a little Aaron judge to him. You know, it's hard to hate Aaron judge, even if you hate the keys. I don't know anyone who who who doesn't like the kid. I mean, if you watch and how you not just in all and amazed that just the things he does on the court. I mean, he's he's must see TV when he plays. You know, it Twitter's EV everything zayante I mean, hit big in the ornament is great for the sport. Totally agree. Okay. Dukes to favorite to win this. Then who in your opinion would be the toughest matchup for them at some point down the line. I look at one team specifically North Carolina because North Carolina's beating them twice north. Carolina knows him very well. North Carolina has an electrifying point guard now beat them. So you can make that argument to of Kazakh has to that they could be the team. But I just think that knowledge that insider info of playing a team twice a year with this potentially being the fourth match up of the year, and these games the tight, they always seem to be tight with Duke and Carolina duty Caroline. China would be dukes biggest threaten winning and Asha championship. Is that factor fiction? Yeah. I think they're right there. I mean, I think saag is as well. I mean, you need to me. Good bigs just because you've gotta deal with Zion. And obviously those teams both both have that. I think Michigan state to you know, with how well while coach they are with the size. They have you know with the point guard play. I think machines they could give them problems as well. But they're they're look if they're full full strength early a few teams that really could give them a game. I think well what I love about Michigan state. This year is their back onto the radar to me. That's where Tom Izzo is that his best. And I know this the team that's probably going to be a two or three seed. But you know, there's not a lot of people are talking about Michigan state when you mentioned national championship contenders. Maybe it's because of what has happened the last couple of years in a tournament last year behind running circles around Tommy is losing a middle. Tennessee state. Do you think that fact act that Michigan state's had a couple of these underwhelming tournament performances kind of hurting them as far as what people think about them nationwide going into this year's dance? Yeah. I mean, they have had a few bad losses. I think that's part of it. They're not. They don't throw all these NBA guys actually like they have in the past. That's part of it too. The big ten is such a good conference. So they drop some games. Yeah. I mean, I think that's part of it. I I think they got a real shot. I'm not I probably won't pick them. But I got a real shot to get to the final four a couple of calls before we get to who's in. And who's out? We got that Brazil for about another twenty five minutes right here on the fan. Getting you ready for selection Sunday. I said the queen's Joe is Joe was that Iraq. Could I run a few questions quick? Yes. Thompson on Syracuse transfer. Ron Seton Hall had I think nine points against Kentucky. He's not getting off the bench. I'm not sure why or what's going on. And then what Saint John's Mickey Dixon left idea. You know, I didn't hear the scuttle butters to wire wary white, and I'm wondering if that and I just wanted to know about any of the recruits that Saint John's dig at the juke os or the transfers have you heard anything about them? Good or bad. I figure. Take it from there. Zac, whatever you want. Showman. We'll start with Taurean Thomson. Yes. He did have doesn't play defense, by the way. He he was good against Kentucky in that game. But yeah, other guys have surpassed in. I mean, if you're not gonna play defense Willard's not gonna play you. It's pretty simple, and I can tell you watching, Tori, and Thomson. He does not like a defense that is not Jimmy. He's got other guys that have have passed him. And I mean few people ask that actually actually asked me about him today on Twitter, and I you know. I mean. Yeah, he's been a disappointment..

"The. Eagles every year. And that makes it difficult to keep funding. Good band aids. Some years they do it two years ago. They won the Super Bowl. It was jibe with a trade was the Garrett blown who gave him a Goodyear and Clement comes out of nowhere as an undrafted back. But that that's the exception to the rule if you keep dumpster diving for running backs every year and hoping there's gonna be a lot of years like last season where you get very little out of the position. I is in Burlington. What's up like Joe? What's happening, man? How you doing? Good. Good. Good talk to you you to listen. I'm with you to an extent we guys listen we won a Super Bowl. A year ago year a year and a month ago? We don't have to be so, hyper aggressive. It is the first day of official free agency. This start to the nude leakier. This is going on on this show right now. And the people are calling in, you know, after the draft or even up until then you can still make moves I'm with you guys. I wanted cabin Coleman more than I want to be on bell. But I'm gonna tell you something how we already told us what he's doing. He's playing the top game. We could have waited for the show Jackson to get released. But you know, what he said I'll give up a six round pick this year. Take good photos fourth round their next year. We're going to get picks for Nick foles. We're going to get complex for Jordan Hicks for Ronald Darby four golden Tate. We are going to make a trade for a running back. And if one happens to pop up forgets released, and they're cheap might be interested in that. But he already told you what he's doing. I love what he's doing because it's smart dab. You realize the New England Patriots have not signed one free agent. So far. Mike, and I hear that. I think we, and I I understand what you're saying. And I want them to take that approach for the most part. But the with the eagles aren't the patriots. Like, they get the benefit of the doubt because they win. Stay won six Super Bowls. The eagles patriot. I understand. But there is something to the method. They use by replenishing. Do you know? Wait a second though. And you're right. But you know, they also sometimes go against the grain the patriots when they need to last year. They took sunny Michelle in the first round and he helped them get to the Super Bowl with a big game in the playoffs. So the at some point here going against the grain. I appreciate a man can be good. You don't always have to stick to this tried and true philosophy compensation picks also with that. And I looked compensation pick formula legal's been playing a very smart game with the patriots, do whatever your as well. And if you can do it and pull it off, and you get extra picks, you're gaining the system, which is great. But here's the problem if you ever needed a position, and you don't want draft that position high which the eagles draft running backs high and you don't want to sign free agents. Where are you going to get the player? It's either going to have to be in the mid rounds and eagles have have bad tracker now of drafting mid round running backs. So if you're not drafting them high fine that's fine philosophy. You don't want to sign him. You don't want to get your complex fine. That's fine philosophies. Well, where's the running back coming from? Where are they going to get? And the reason why I'm fired up about this tonight. I understand they want free agency. I understand technically the league ear has been active for two hours, technically, two hours, eighteen minutes. But of the of all the running backs on the market the top one two three four five six seven eight nine are off the market the top nine running backs already gone. This is now what's out there for deals Brandon Bolden if I'd line these people up in front of you even football fans and fantasy football players. You wouldn't know that were Brandon Bolden? You would know marshawn Lynch because everyone knows marshawn Lynch you can't play anymore. Blau Powell who I like, and he's thirty Jonathan Stewart was done two years ago, Corey grant legare blunt is done. Je quiz Rogers, the most tree names left on the list are TJ Yeldan Spencer ware. These are third running backs. So unless there's a trade coming or unless the eagles are going to depart from their philosophy and draft. Maybe just in the first round. I don't see where they're getting a running back. You could say, well, we're not gonna play the game of the first day of free agency fine. But if all the good players go on the first day, and you're sitting there, and it's again musical chairs. You don't have a seat you philosophy doesn't work. Let's talk to Randy who's up next on WBZ. What's up Randy? Hey, what's going on? Man. You doing? I'm a little pissed off to be honest. I'm a little I'm a little hot like okay for one. Kevin Coleman a five million a year men. That is still man it is what are we doing? We're sitting here, and we're sitting here. Okay. So we're going to get a fourth or worried about or like a fourth round compact law coming our way, what are the fourth round pick gonna get us. Nothing. Naven play. I don't understand we have the money to do it. He's a game changing running back on sign up. And here's the thing. Randy. When it comes to the fourth round pick a year from now the eagles are loading up this year. You don't you don't bring Sean back. You don't sign me. They're loading up to try to win at least one more before they have to pay Carson. So this is the time to sign a running back. Right. And we're going to sit here like pretend that the top ten running backs in the drafter all going to be able to you know, contribute to us. And like Josh Jacobs to fall flat on his face stock. We don't know Koran Hickman could be an all pro next year. We don't know what with that. Randy eight. Let's say let's say they like, Josh Jacobson. Let's say they think Josh Jacobs is going to be great. He also could go to picks before them. And then they have they don't have the player. Exactly. I I know Daniel Jeremiah hasn't been it's top five, man. I don't understand. I mean, like, I understand, you know, you wanna keep Nelson. Or around. No for nine point four million dollars. Man, come on. And it's not worth not point four million dollars. Well, he's not. And if he is I shouldn't come at the expense. Rainy. Appreciate of running back. Look, I'll be real about it running backs in free agency are risky, and they are usually not a good bet that this the really because they have carries on them their older. Kevin Coleman to ten is a fine. Bet. Mark Ingram at three fifteen is a fair bet. They're both better than average bets to succeed. This wasn't forget the Levy on belting. I never wanted that that would have been ridiculous haven't Coleman a to ten and then you can draft the running back you want where you want without the pressure of having to get that player. The eagles have gotten the benefit of the doubt. How it gets the benefit out in this town a lot because they won the Super Bowl. And it's how we season, and it's like, well, we just laugh at everything every other team. Does it how he does everything? Right. This doesn't make any sense doesn't make any sense at all Matthew is up next. Are you good, man? What's going on? Hey, so I'll be honest man, I urge ticked off at the the whole situation. I feel like it's a Titanic and there's ten lifeboats. And we just watched them all sail away. You know, I I checked my son. And I said, you're not gonna believe this at least you went to a crappy team. But that's not the point. So we need a running back, and this guy the other caller said how he won the Super Bowl. Okay. He made some good decisions net foles and the players won the Super Bowl. And Doug coach dog. That's correct. How we had an up and down up and down, man. He just went a lotta rungs down and a conservative mind is I think there is a direct correlation between not having a good running back and Carson Wentz his health. So you're gonna you're gonna tip that scale and have past past past. And I got it. I got it more of a passing team. But you're asking him to do so much more more of a chance of getting injured. I really think that it's a fair point. I mean, the more he's back there that the less balanced, they are and I want to be more passing him too. But the less balance they have Matthew. Appreciate it. It does expose Carson Wentz. If he's going to be back there throwing six hundred passes. It changes the equation. It totally does let's grab John filled out. What's up, John? Yeah. Hey there. How're you doing? Enjoy your show. But I have a little thing there, knowing my thing not always just how he is. So I'll blame it on Jay baron because if you look back two years ago when all of the running back was coming through seems we could have had a choice and Joe Bannon just disregard at all. So we lost all over here to go pick bowl poet who whatever for running back. So that's my phone line. You can tell me what you take me. Joe Douglas, Joe banner. Joe Douglas, Douglas, right. That makes more sense John. I appreciate. Yeah. I mean, he's part of this. And they have to hit like all right? Let's go to the Douglas thing. They have to hit on the draft pick stuff if they're gonna go that way, and they go in the fourth round. They gotta do it. Are we going to hand this over to Phillies baseball the first time? I could do this for the first time in a while Phillies tonight, whereas Bob Bob this leading off unbelievable. Many leading off excavating off the Phillies night will be Andrew mccutchen. Maybe the sort of their lineup on opening day will hand it off down in the grapefruit league. I'll be back after the game Phillies and the Yankees tonight should be a fun one Bryce Harper is in the lineup. So you guys enjoy the game. We have the game right here on WNYC tonight Phillies coming at you in just a few minutes. Enjoy it. I will talk to you right after it's on WIP sports radio ninety four WIP twenty twenty four by.

"Eight five five two one two four to seven is the number to get on the show. We want to hear from you. The goff. Prescott matchup at the Coliseum in LA is going to be interesting to say the least and when is now on Saturday. Right. So Saturdays colts and. Chiefs at Arrowhead followed by that game. In the Coliseum. Cowboys Rams the first ones at four thirty seconds after that at around eight fifteen and the Rams are favored by seven. And I just want to like look at this thing, everybody talks about how you know, when you're comparing these two teams how you know the defense, obviously for the Cowboys is, you know. Has come to a different level than it than it appeared to be what they were featuring early in the season they came alive. Right. And they they started winning. They took these, and I I did a pretty decent job of stopping Seattle. They got the late back door cover. Touchdown. Right. And the two point conversion that, you know, beat a lot of a lot of people had that at minus one and a half, though, if you got to you push two and a half you lost the bat, but either or so do you believe Carver high that? Off a lot of people thought that he was a bust then he had a much better year. Then he had this year the start of this year. They're talking about his first half was like historic. And then he bottom line tailed off at the end of the year. And but he's got a good defense to do you think is better than Prescott? And do you think the Rams or the Cowboys have a better defense? I think golf is one hundred percent better than Prescott just for the fact that he can actually is accurate with the football and can throw it to where he wants to dot the Dax very accurate, not accurate at all. So I think on that hand Goth is better. I'm still not sold on Goth being the be all end all of of quarterbacks in the NFL. But I think he's shown that he can win games over the past two years. He's got a lot of explosive talent around him as well helps having the the best running back in the NFL behind you that definitely helps. He hasn't been the same without Cup in the lineup. They've missed a lot since Cup went down. So he's still got a lot to prove today. One. They went seven and one of the end of the year. Right. The Dallas Cowboys do you think it was because of their deep answer because they had an easy schedule. I don't I don't believe in the easy schedule stuff. I think that their defense played really, well, I think that they started to find some things on offense that worked for them running game Dak made some you know, that made some plays. I just I the same thing. I said last week. The problem. My problem with Dak Prescott is I don't think that he can win you a game by himself. But I know he can lose you one. That's my problem with him. So he's got a guess Dak Prescott has a sore knee now going into this game. But that's not gonna stop. And there was a conference. Call would Dallas media today, and Sean McVeigh was asked first odds on teams looking for the next Sean McVeigh, I think more than anything. What it is. It's a reflection of our organization success. If there's anything that these last couple of years have made you appreciated surrounding yourself with people who are better than you that you can learn from. I think a lot of it. That's what it's a reflection of. I couldn't be more appreciative of the people that I'm doing this with disease some of your friends, or maybe people that you've worked with get opportunities because of things that Dave earned is very exciting. Seeing Matt leflore the head had the backers is awesome for him at one of my closest friends since we were together in Washington. And then seeing to great coaches on her staff get opportunities compete for jobs. Shane Waldron and Zack Taylor. I think it's great. I think it'd be naive for me to think that I haven't gotten the chances. I got if it wasn't for people that have been around me, and you're just really happy for these guys. But I think it's a reflection of our organization's success funny. I gotta say this after all of that BS that came out of his mouth is that have you ever noticed anyone ever mentioned one other coach on the ram staff ever? Besides him. No. He says all these people that are better than me. That are making me look good. It's the funniest thing. I've ever heard because he gets all the credit and no one at all ever gets one drip of. Who gets love a besides him? No one one other coach today. Mention on the Rams ever. I mean, honestly who weighed Phillips rarely? I mean, that's the only guy that they barely at all the old, man. But they talk about Sean McVay. He gets all the credit for everything. I in fact, he gets credit for every higher in the NFL. Now, everyone who gets hired give credit to Sean McVay. I'm sick of it. All they're looking for. I'm sick and tired of it. What's he won nothing? But every guy that gets a job they credit him. What is going on? I just I don't understand it. I really don't understand it. Stephen houston. You're on CBS sports radio. And what's going on? And I hate it. Hey, can I get a problem? Son, man. Can we get him a beverage can we get him a little bit a little bit of one of those? Thank you. I I'm down here in Houston. Texans are supposed to be my team that. I'm in my thirties. And I'm trying to figure out that as the organization forgotten by guys like us. The guys that grew up with his during the Oilers and. Be forgotten at the time for guys like me to move on. I don't I don't understand how we keep getting a whole lot of nothing. Right. Is this year after year, and then is excuse excuse. And like, I think I think the Texas have like a remember the Tigers complex these guys got this, hard and termination and not really much background. And they think there's going to push through. And it hasn't been working. I don't know if there's any rhyme or reason to the fact that they've had playoff failures. I someone made a really good point to me last night about the raiders that they beat had mcglaughlin playing quarterback in that game Carver high Brandon up, and that's the only one they've ever beaten. They're just not that good in the postseason and O'Brien's had his struggles. But I think sometimes in life, you have to learn how to lose and struggle before you capitalize on those failures and turn it into success. I know that sounds crazy. I don't think it's like a bad organization. I think they're doing in my view a lot of the things. Well, I think they're making good draft picks. I think they they win a lot of games and they're the division leader. And they've gone to the postseason and they've been there. They just haven't figured out how to have success there. And I don't think it really is a reason for you to. Quit on them and find a new team and and jump over to the Cowboys or something like that. Because then I think most of your friends will end up. Beating your ass. You know what I mean? Like who does that like what you lost a playoff game? And you're gonna stop being a fan. I told you what I do. I stop kissing my Steeler pillow. And that's about it. They didn't make the playoffs at the end of kissing the Steeler pillow every night before I go to bed. Now. I just throw it off the bed onto the ground. And sometimes I step on it. But I never stopped loving the Steelers that'd be like Carver high becoming a jet fan after all that is suffering with the bills or mafia becoming a giants fan after suffering with the jets his entire life. Who does that people around your think? That's okay. So it's all right. Let's stick with them. And don't give up on. They lost the game. I mean are all the ravens fans going to jump off a cliff because they got beat by the someone's got to lose the G damn game. I mean every time they play. It's like the NFL sells it right one and done. Someone's got to lose. I mean, the bears they bomb, you lose pack. It up you're done. That's how it works in the NFL. I kinda like it. I kinda like that. And the NC double A tournament to lose your out by there's none of the seven games, and you can. Play better on Thursday than you did on Tuesday. And we still got games five six and seven we still might get a home game out of this nonsense. I love this one and done boom. Either get it done or you don't. And then fans that you're getting up on your team because they lost. It sounds kinda weak ass. In fact, mafia get him another drink. He needs to drink several cocktails to get over the law. Day with Jay baron. Sports flash. Scotty will start in the NFL cardinals have.

"They should be like auto porter. Brad Beal like a new lease on life. And you know, I it's like we talked about argument on Twitter last December Almost almost a year to the day. I think it was the summer thirtieth. 2017 we had this argument on Twitter about how the grizzlies losing. Conley. And go Seoul was probably for the best. They'd get a chance at a top pick with Washington if they get worse without John wall instead of better if they got worse. I don't think that that's going to happen. Don't we'll see we'll see the last year with Sattar an sqi moving the ball around Bradley bill's gonna get more pick and roll opportunities because he knew dimensions of his game going to be interesting to watch this team without wall. You know, what's interesting when I saw that news come out. That is exactly how the Conley injury was described with the bone spur on the achilles. Oh, and it's a bitch. I mean, it's gonna take him a long time to get back. And he wasn't in great shape. Already. Like us already a guy. That when everybody saw during the summer, they thought he had blown up a little bit in a when you have to be would that rehab process is bad. And obviously, you can't be doing a ton of exercise, and it didn't look like John wall did a tunnel exercise, even when he was opening. Well, this offseason either way they should be taking pay from the grizzlies playbook and tank in the hell I mean Chris tank, but they should be trying to fall fall fall in the standings. I think they'll make the playoffs that offer the best if they do easily for the worst if they do. Chris if the grizzlies made the playoffs as an eighth seeing us smoked in the first round last year they wanted to have Jaren Jackson. That's true. That is true. And the wizards make the playoffs and get pounded in the first round by Milwaukee. They're not going to have a chance at Zion RJ Barrett or even like a lesser prospect like Kevin porter someone like that. I'm glad you said this Kevin because the last one is the two thousand nineteen number one pick in the NBA draft will be Williamson. Really, I think. So you think it is without cause you enter that fast. I don't think it's without question. There are still NBA people that I've talked to that have RJ ranked are Barrett. Zion's? He made a Duke ranked number one. There's people who still view him as a better all around pro. So no, I think it depends on which team ends up landing the pick. And with the new lottery odds, the flattened Dodds there's an increased chance team, you know, with the eighth or ninth or tenth best on. Odds could jump up to that spot. So I think these ion or Jay baron. I just I don't see anybody else elevating. So that number one spot besides those two, but I I would lean toward Zion. This kid at Murray state's got a ton of talk man people. I I've been reading a lot of stuff John grants killing it sophomore point guard. He even got a shout out on a when Durant did that podcast with Simmons? That was one of the first times that I saw him get big pub. He was when he was asked about which was an obvious. Kevin Durant really keeps up with all this because he shouted out the kid, which I thought was interesting. I mean, you got obviously very busy when you are an NBA player in everybody knows ion. But there was Kevin Durant talking about John Moran. John Marantz is the type of player who his ball handling ability is a legally get anywhere on the floor that he wants his three pointer needs to get better. But he can get to the rim at will as he develops and get stronger. He he could be a guy. Guy who draws a lot of falls on the NBA just saying. He one of those guys that gets to the rim and his. South Carolina leading get out of the state may lie. I guess late bloomer, you know. Yeah. But I mean that would have been right after they made the final four, right? He's a sophomore at have been right after South Carolina. Was there the final four could have brought this kid in. Wow. He's exciting for sure I think he's I think you could easily play into the top five conversation. Not number one. But top five conversation with with his performance..

"I want to give you a sense of why I think he's doing it. And I blame him by blame. I mean, I think it is the fault of Colli Leonard. And in some ways Spurs organization that probably didn't have a choice. One of the things that I think LeBron James has never gotten the credit. He deserves four and for that matter. Kevin Durant, even the people get mad at Katie. And then Katie gets real sensitive and lashed out of the whole world Jin Derrick rose is a great performance. And Katie goes after the media, cool, go go go go. Lebron always honored his contract. He never demanded a trade. He never leak. There was going to be a trade didn't stay again. Again, he left on his contract. And it's a copycat league people. Do what stars do, but they also. Look for pass that are that are blazed by various. Stars. And emulate the ones that they want to go down, quite Leonard. I think is a top three player in the league when he's healthy. At least last time. He played a full season. I thought he was the second best player in the league after him. Lebron james. And what he did what he created was the precedent that if you're a star, and you're somewhere, you don't want to be and you don't get traded when or how you want you sit out you feign injury. You blackmail by having a process and approach that actually damages your team's chances to win. And I think it's I think it lacks honor care about anymore. But I do think it violates your word. I think it's petty and small I think it's wrong. But here's the problem. Here's the thing. Here's the deal. It is effective. I can't argue with that. Didn't want to be a spur Kleiner couldn't play quiet. Leonard lettuce. Spurs team struggle now without him. And they called his bluff for an entire season. And they finally buckled. I get it. They can't afford to have quieted on another year. They can't recruit the kind of talent some other markets can to Marta Rosen's and all star was better than nothing. I get it. I hate it. But I get it. The problem becomes that set a precedent now because what's going on right now. What did you mean bar scene right now? Kawhi Leonard is a great market. He's at an organization with guys glad to have him. He's got an incredible GM really a president of operations, but whatever head of basketball ops. He's got a great head coach. I think we think Nick nurse and he's got a team. That's one of the best in Eastern Conference players who are busting their behinds playing defense. It worked quite one quiet in the right place in the next year. You can go every once. And Jimmy Butler pulled the exact same move. And I don't know how to argue Jim if Jimmy Butler in the room, I don't know what I would say the guy you're doing the wrong thing. Even though it's gonna work stop doing it. We live in a time in America right now where people do the things that are effective even if they're wrong. It's just a reality across all of our pop culture, politics technology, and now sports. It's the wrong thing. I know, but it's working and nobody thinks that's an issue anymore. The Jimmy Butler story should be a bigger story. You're not gonna play and it's cool the Derrick rose and by the way. The jubilation the celebration that you saw for Derrick rose in that locker room. It struck me two ways. One those guys love him. And to he is the anti Jimmy Butler to them present around likeable. And I've said this I don't need likable. You'll have to be likable for me to respect you. Nick saban's the example. I point to a lot. There's a lot of guys. I mean, LeBron would be that guy. Sometimes LeBron's such a complicated cat, but and so say, but. You have to know your role in your lane and Jimmy Butler is not a head coach. And Jimmy Butler is not LeBron James. And I hate what he's doing. I think it's wrong. I think it's dishonorable and I think it's because Kawhi Leonard pulled this off and one and I'm not saying I mean, the Spurs don't want to be martyrs for the rest of the league. Great popular doesn't want to sit as organization back two or three or five years. So that other organizations have the same problems crop up. I get it in in a self interested way and the Spurs are playing really good basketball. They always think they have Bob. So I'm not sure who's to blame other than Kawhi Leonard. But I'll say this Pandora's box has been opened. I would reference Indiana Jones and the lost ark. But still would get really confused about what I'm talking about. When the ark gets opened. That's what's happened. The arc spin opened. We got knowledge now we didn't need. It turns out if you're a superstar and scream bombs at your coaches and your teammates in a practice, and that doesn't work, and you may want to be gone in that doesn't work, and you tell your coach and a meeting you want to be gone, and that doesn't work. You can just sit out be like to hell with you. I'm hurt painting. My money, I'm hurt a hamstring. Oh, prove it ought hurts. Do an Ray. Oh, didn't pick it up. Oh, my ankle. Oh, I've got fatigue. I listened to write is really bad. And may I can't play tomorrow. The trace, you know, Notre Dame. Penn State confused me. I can't play. Oh, stewart. Comex favorite cities, Oklahoma City has never even been there. I know what's happening. Oh, I can't play whenever you're whatever. Excuse it works that rather than you guy laughed too much. Why are you giggling sports talk radio? Stop it. I can't play another game. It's effective. And I hate it. And. Am I gonna bash Jimmy Butler anymore than I have? I think it's wrong. I think it's ridiculous. I think it's obnoxious. I think it's a mistake. I think it probably is in part like with pop the product not just because things are always complicated nuanced. You have a really stubborn head coach and pop. Who's thing was no you're under contract. My way the highway to hell with you. More or less than co. I said the hell with you man, and the same thing's going on Jimmy Butler and Tom. Get it. Things are complicated. You're under contract. We don't always have the bosses that we want. And this is a reality thing a lot of guys in in professional sports. They get outraged by. I got lied to. Yeah. People lie bosses lie. All the time. I can the real world bosses lie. All the time is it. Okay. No. Is life fair? It's not the people you hire the teammates that you acquire always live up to the expectations. You have. Unfortunately, that's not the way that it goes. And I don't know what the solution is other than I find myself. Suddenly rooting for Tom does ego and stubbornness and frustration. I hope he makes Butler sit on that bench the entire year. I'll be doesn't trade him for six first round picks because you know, what to hell with that entire notion. And the next guy who would try to pull that off this Jimmy Butler thing is actually quite Leonard part two. And if Butler gets where he wants to go the gets traded affiliate gets traded accused enemy ends up in a great situation. It's going to be not when not if it happens with the next guy. But when. And if you're listening to the show in Milwaukee. You're listening to Oklahoma City. If you're listening to basically, anywhere, that's not Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, maybe Miami, be very very weary of hoping that Butler goes to your team because if he goes somewhere else the next time a superstar refuses to play because he wants out plays the ultimate Trump card. It might be in your backyard. Eight five five two one two four CBS is the phone number eight five five two one two four CBS is the phone number in Rappaport.

"jay baron" Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg
"I mean, they're, they're, they're going to be just they're going to be just fine. But let's put it all in perspective. Not your name went to Bahamas played a bunch of teams from Bahamas won't by sixty game. You know, providence went to Spain and their role in people. You don't like, let's not lose our minds. It's August. This is a starting point for all these teams. It's a long season. A lot of stuff happens. Forget about on the court. Then think about all the things that happen with your teams off the courtroom, the course of the season that impact practice teams getting better trust chemistry and everything else. I mean, like the littlest things can take your team and said it sideways. So when everyone's losing their minds, I just don't lose my mind like that. Do you think if if a say this, I think if Kentucky hadn't beaten these teams because teams alternately that they played were okay. They weren't great. But if they unbeaten him, then I would lose my mind. I mean, seriously, I, I always felt like, man, you know whether you're at Lennick enough, you know what, you know by playing teams. And I think if you don't beat those teams in, I lose my mind. If you beat those teams in you just par for the course, let's move on. That's kind of how I feel about it. Seth. And and let let's be honest, the teams that you just mentioned taking Notre Dame out of it because I went on that trip in a way to the Bahamas and played those teams. And if you didn't beat them by thousand two games didn't even mad. They were silly games, but but I didn't think duke's and I didn't think I didn't think Kentucky's were silly games. So if you didn't beat him by double digits or your run out on them, then I think you'd lose your mind, but it was since you did you businesses usual, hey, let me ask you questions, ready? I I wanna stirred up little bit. Oh boy. Duke goes to Canada, right. And has the largest Crowley twenty two thousand over three games, whatever it is. And everybody's telling me it's all about Zion, Williamson, and. Yeah, Jay baron. Okay. Let me ask you questions if and they should be paid because you know, look at the draw that Zayn Williamson and RJ baron is if those guys same guys went over there and didn't have Duke on their chests and work part of a Duke trip people you think would have showed up at those games. No, they would've been just course games course. So I say all of you, my my, my weekly shot is what's the brand worth is all I'm asking, what's the brand worth? I'll continue on with the show. Now, Seth. Well, all right. Jersey, hands, romance. I was giving at that point. I, you know, people are mad because because Michigan announcer starting quarterback shape Patterson than Michigan, people started selling number two jerseys and people like well, see, it's just a coincidence and I'm thinking to myself well, okay, sell a number two jersey that doesn't have the Michigan brand on what's it worth. I don't know. I don't know. I think the brand matters says, is all I'm saying, yeah, don't even get me started on Tyler hands, bro. Nobody ever bought a Matt ants Tyler hands, bro jersey when he played it for way. But everybody in a mother brought in North Carolina one. Why? Because it a brand stop with on the player stuff. And that. Brought to you by band and he will participate on that throughout the season. But you know, in the end I do and I also think people lose their minds, but. How many guys jerseys move the needle? Well, not very many and send it. Can I give a warning to our listeners. I got an argument on Twitter. No doesn't wasn't started by me. It was started by one of our, yes, peons national radio hosts about payment of players, and he participates about it, Seth and he didn't even know the players actually got cash. He didn't know to my son was getting five hundred forty dollars every two weeks. So he when he didn't know and he found out he said, well, it's not enough people that complain about these things don't even know what the kids are getting..
"jay baron" Discussed on Pull Up with CJ McCollum
"He's got a camera crew, following him. He stops and talks to me for five minutes the most energetic conversation I had in a long time and then he's off to like, do as next thing. And you know he, he's, he's one of those guys that just his work ethic is so incredible that doing, you know, coldest balls, which is awesome. Awesome series issue. It's it's fun. You know, whenever you get a chance to kind of sit down and have a conversation, even though it's obviously being recorded. But at the same time, you actually are having a real conversation. You also do get to rip a little bit and and have these bits and that's still in. I'm I haven't seen Djirak. I'm Michael, but I'm gonna look for his for his HBO special. And you said, when is comedy by Blake, just for people that may be interested in go on or if it'll be September, thirteenth, Thursday, September, thirteenth, it'll be a live show, have five different comedians. And like I said, mixed mixed with some sketches and then you know, they'll be a little little after party and all that. So you know something I look forward to and Lefort doing for a long long time CJ the reason Blake's comedy works so well is that unlike you, he self deprecating, he says, things like he's a big dump soup at athlete. He did the last actor. He killed it. CJ doesn't have the self deprecating humor. That's why you can't do comedy. Like the only time I make the airwaves as when I when I speak facts about certain situation, it hard people judge me and say, I'm a hater. As athletes. I think people always kind of look at us like, all right. Like what? What can you say that's actually like funny and, and I think you you make people appreciate you as a real person because you know you and I get to sit down and have a very real conversation or talk whenever we talk. But you know, a lot of people don't get to see us in that sense. I mean, people do with this podcast with you use such a great job with that. It gives people look at who you really are, but a lot of people don't a lot. A lot of guys don't get that opportunity. So for me, I think comedy is kind of that way of showing people, you know who I am and the things that I like. I think he, I think he a good job. I've seen some of the cliffs in delivery. You deliver his right, and then you sometimes you keep a straight face and it makes it a little. It makes it funnier. Appreciate it. Appreciate it. We were just talking about college basketball, so we won't keep you too much longer, but there's a couple of questions I had asked you. Watching college basketball, the way the game is changing. Obviously the the blaze, implement certain rules now, and I think they should be paid, but that's, that's a whole nother argument. The do Buddha have been on TV to last week and a half. They've been showing players, Jay, baron, zion's, Williamson, Williamson, I only watch college basketball because I'm so far removed from it, but this do dunk from the free throw line in everything. So we were having a discussion about how his game translates to the NBA. Have you have you been able to watch any of him and what do you think of his game? I didn't. I really only seen my highlights of his game, but I have asked some people, you know, my college coach, Jeff cable who's now hit. You just took the head job at Pittsburgh went back and he was a system at Duke for came and I don't even know how many last year's but I, you know, I kinda always ask him about guys, you know, they're gonna on the high school level that he likes and stuff. And the thing he. Said about Zion is that he's much better basketball player than people give him credit for. And the reason you don't see that is because you know if he's going down four or five highlight dunks the game, nobody's gonna put him, you know, dribble drive and setting up with teammate and the coin for a corner three. You know what I mean?.
"jay baron" Discussed on Six Pixels of Separation - Marketing and Communications Insights - By Mitch Joel at Mirum
"Okay they're terrible for a business for so many reasons which we could have a whole episode about that but i think what happens is we lose some of that pitching in and we get comfortable with that's not my responsibility that's franks responsibility over in customer support our you know i know this customers right in front of me right now and they're saying they have a problem and i actually know how to fix the problem but it's not my job to fix the problem my job is to pass them to the person who can and that attitude becomes a cancer in organization and it grows to where nolan's taking responsibility so i do think that the ideal is everyone's involved in customer experience and everybody recognizes the contribution they make to creating those remarkable customer experiences but if you have to do it with a smaller team to kind of get the wheels greased into get things going that's certainly an acceptable approaches well so there's another famous saying of the customer is always right and i talked about jay baron hug your haters customer service books and turning a complaint into an opportunity and not necessarily a new turn of phrase but i was always more attracted to the saying that the customer is not always right the right customer's always right and a lot of times what i see as being sort of pawned office customer service or customer retention is actually the fight to keep a client or customer that actually isn't really aligned with your business how how problematic is that in the system.
